Axial retarders are designed to be interfaced with a drive shaft. Their flexibility offers numerous options for installation in a vehicle as well as for industrial applications.
For vehicles with medium and long wheelbases, axial retarders are inserted in the transmission line, between the gearbox and the axle.
The retarder is attached to the chassis with flexible mountings and serves as transmission relay bearing.
Its location complies with standards for balancing and constant velocity driveline so as to ensure proper operation of the transmission line.
